As part of our new season of Artist and Curator Development activity, we are programming a series of Away Day visits to galleries, studios and other visual arts venues both within the region and beyond. These are designed to explore artist-led activity, to profile the work of artists within the West Midlands and other regions and to create networking opportunities. The first of our visits is to The New Art Gallery Walsall.

The visit will involve a tour of The New Art Gallery (including behind the scenes) by Head of Exhibitions, Deborah Robinson and an opportunity to meet exhibiting artists Oliver Jones (his solo exhibition Divine is on display on the 4th floor until 20 November) and Chloe Ashley, the gallery's current artist in residence. Exhibitions and Artists’ Projects Curator Zoë Lippett will also introduce the Gallery’s Studio programme. To be followed by tea and coffee.

Please meet at 2pm in the 4th floor Exhibition Gallery, Saturday 5 November.
